Furthermore, dividends are always an important investment factor to consider, and Kroger Co has paid $ 5.23 / share in dividends to shareholders over the past 20 years we looked at above. Many investors will only invest in dividend stocks, so this element of total return is always an important consideration. Automated reinvestment of dividends in additional equity shares can be a great way for an investor to maximize their returns. The above calculations are made with the assumption that dividends received over time are reinvested (calculations use the closing price at an earlier date). Based on the most recent annual dividend rate of .72 / share, we calculate KR has a current dividend of approximately 1.91%. Another interesting data point that we can check is the “return on cost” – in other words, we can express the current annual dividend of .72 versus the original purchase price of $ 10.94 / share. This yields a cost return of 17.46%.
